Always happy to volunteer!!
First time doing inventory— I didn’t realize that the Farmer’s Market at Foggy Bottom donated a lot of their unsold produce to Miriam’s. There were many squashed, potatoes, cabbages, peppers, tomatoes, onions, and more.
I had my last shift as Miriam's for the semester, and it has been such a joy to work with everyone 3x a week this semester. I feel as though I really got to know the guests and case managers better, and really grew into my role as a guest services assistant. Being in this position of leadership as well as being the engageDC site leader really gave me the confidence needed to succeed this semester.
It has been such an honor running The Climb Is Our Story this past semester with Zaniya. We finished off by presenting at the symposium earlier today, and it was amazing for everyone to see all that we have accomplished. I cannot wait to see the program continue to grow next semester.
I worked on mentor interviewing with Saba, and learned how to conduct an interview.
Today was not as crowded as last week and we were able to fulfill most of the clothing requests for guests. I talked to some new guests who I have never talked to before which was nice.
I enjoyed working with the kids.
